YOUR PHONE’S CAMERA isn’t just “good enough.” It’s great. With the right apps, it can be incredible.

SHOOT

ProCamera

Stop fixing your photos in post. Use ProCamera’s huge set of manual controls—everything from exposure and focus to ISO and white balance—and get it right the first time. The app’s slow shutter settings make for great night shots. iOS / $5

 

 

gl_apppack_1_vscocam

VSCO Cam

The best start-to-­finish photography app you’ll find anywhere. The simple interface has easy controls for adjusting focus and exposure. The set of built-in filters do far more than just add a retro haze. iOS, Android / Free

 

 

EDIT

Darkroom

One word: Curves. This feature lets you adjust RGB channels separately, just like in Photoshop. Also, every edit gets saved as you work, and you can undo as far back as you want. iOS / Free, $3 upgrade for curves

 

 

gl_apppack_1_snapseed

Snapseed

It’s been around forever, but Google’s Snapseed remains one of the most powerful mobile photo tools. Get finicky with your edits, or just tap the Automatic button and let the algorithms work their magic. iOS, Android / Free

 

 

SAVE

gl_apppack_1_onedrive

OneDrive

There are a thousand ways to back up your mobile photos to the cloud. Few offer you as much free storage as OneDrive, and none has a better interface for scrolling through memories. iOS, Android, Windows Phone / Free

 

 

gl_apppack_1_flickr

Flickr

It’s not the best app for shooting or editing, but with a free terabyte of storage and access to one of the biggest online communities of photographers, Flickr becomes the perfect place to dump absolutely everything. iOS, Android / Free

 

 

SHARE

gl_apppack_1_storehouse

Storehouse

This app lets you group your ­photos together to tell a story. Arrange them into a gallery and add text for some behind-the-scenes commentary. Your vacation snaps just became 1,000 percent less boring. iOS / Free

 

 

gl_apppack_1_500

500px

You got it: The Shot. The one you want everyone to see. Put it on 500px, where it’ll be shown off in all its glory. Then poke around and get inspired by all the people taking better pictures than you. iOS, Android, Windows Phone / Free
